I am using the CIV controller from Icom on my Icom 746Pro with a USB to DB23 (ask me what it took to find that HI HI.)
Also using HRD (http://www.ham-radio-deluxe.com
) mostly for control. I did find this neat little program though at http://www.dxlabsuite.com/HRD_Bridge/
will interface HRD to MultiPSK (f6cte.free.fr/index_anglais.htm) one of my
favorite multimode programs, though DM780 is a nice peice of software. So MultiPSK now can log my freq, and control
the rig through the HRD interface. WHEEE. Using the RigBlaster to get audio in and out of rig, also on a USB to DB9 cord.
All of this is running on an OS that would make Mr. Mel pull his hair out. HI HI. Windows 64 bit. While I have had the
controller for a long time, I never hooked it up until about 3 weeks ago, and it still seems a little funky to have the
computer changing my frequency for me. HI HI. I still have a bad habit of wanting to highlight the DX spots so I can
read them better, but OOPS, there goes my rig changing frequency! I'm still fairly uncertain that I like all this, but
the EQSL direct from HRD is a mighty nice feature, though HRD is sorely lacking when it comes to 10-10 use. Luckily
HRD stores it's log files in an MS Access database, and that I can do something with as far as adding back 10 numbers
and the likes. So long story short, I am using CAT Control now, and will continue to experiment with for the time being.
